State Patrol Accountability

Governor Ricketts promises to “evaluate alternative strategies” for implementing improvements in State Patrol accountability. The governor says union leaders are standing in the path of needed reforms.  In August, the Governor’s Office called for new measures to hold Nebraska State Patrol Officers more accountable, but the State Law Enforcement Bargaining Council has told the governor it’s not in the best interest of union members to re-open negotiations of the 2017-through-2019 labor contract.
